Northern NSW : Rescue Winter 2016
First of the new fleet arrives The first of the Service’s four new AgustaWestland AW139 helicopters arrived at the Broadmeadow base on schedule in early June. Built in Italy the $16 million aircraft is currently undergoing a further $2 million major modification and fit out to install the required specialised rear cabin medical equipment. The AW139s are larger, faster and capable of flying longer distances than the Service’s existing aircraft and have a key role in the contract awarded by the NSW government. Under the new agreement the Hunter and New England operations join forces with the Lismore- based Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service to provide world- class aeromedical, search and rescue capability across northern NSW to the Queensland border. The expansion will see new operational headquarters and a separate engineering and administration base in the Newcastle area, a new base at Lismore and an upgrade at Tamworth. From 2017 the full fleet will be operational and ready to go to work from March at Newcastle, April at Lismore and from May at Tamworth. Join Club 139 Club 139 members will provide collaborative support by contributing to the future of our region’s aeromedical services with 139 like- minded people and organisations.
